Flashback Friday...2008

Ok, so I've taken a little time away from my new found obsession of blogging for the holidays.  I wanted to capture the fine memories of 2008 so my Dori mind won't forget them all.  BLESSED!!  That is the top of my list from 2008.  I started the year off with a two week notice to head for Munich on a last minute planned trip, by myself, to visit my brother for a week.  I'm not real sure how I got all the pieces to fit perfectly for me going, but I did and I'm so grateful I did!  While Chris was working, I was hoping on trains and roaming the country.  Munich was beautiful and the people were absolutely kind.   Spring break we got together with my brothers family along with my parents and went to Disneyland for a week.  It was a fun and CROWED trip.  The park was so full but our families had fun despite the long lines.  In May, I earned a free trip from my Once Upon A Family business to Jamaica for a whole week.  Tyler was unable to take the trip with me, so I headed to another country on my own.  I did meet up with some friends and had an incredibly peaceful week sitting on the beach, snorkeling, going for boat rides and winning an archery contest.  The women on this trip were some of the most amazing women, and we all had so much fun.  This summer we went with Tyler to San Diego for Basketball camp.  While he was coaching we went to the beach, harbor, and swimming in the hotel.  Later that month we went back to San Diego for Tyler's conference and the kids and I went to Legoland (were in an earthquake), to the beach (found the best beach!) and relaxed in the hot tub.  Tyler coached at an FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) Camp and we went up to Flagstaff with him and stayed in the dorms.  We didn't get too much camping this year, but have put it into the new years list of things to do. As you can see, traveling is one of our favorite things to do.  Soon I will be posting some of my New Year's Resolutions....
